Just to see if everything is working properly go to START, ALL PROGRAMS, ACCESSORIES, Command Prompt and click on it. This will open up a windows ANSI screen. If your C drive is accessible you should see something like C:\Documents and Settings. Type in CD and four periods and hit enter. The directory will shrink down. Do it again CD followed by periods and hit enter. Now you will be at the C:\ prompt. Type in CHKDSK /F What this is, is the check disk command. Next time your machine reboots you'll get a blue screen and the machine will go through three self checks. It will also repair errors on the disk. When it finishes, windows will restart and hopefully you will be back in business.

Win32?whats that?


It is telling you that the file you have downloaded is invalid. It probably means it is corrupted during the download process.

I'm not sure what you are downloading but have you tried AVG free edition?

D:\ application can not run in Win32 mode


To correct and solve this error, follow this steps:

1. Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar)
2. Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process name and clicking End Process.
3. Then terminate explorer.exe process.
4. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
5. Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
6. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting Enter key:

del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a

c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the external drive may also be infected.
7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
9. Navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the comma which is also needed):

“Userinit”=”C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,”

If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data.
